Ever since “Sex Education” wormed its way into the hearts of many in 2019, it has been hard to let go of the show. With such raw emotions and realistic struggles faced by teenagers, along with some laugh-out-loud moments and some brilliant comic timings, “Sex Education” remains a show that many like to watch over and over again. The last season left the fans at a rather interesting point- a pregnant Jean, a voice message deleted, a Headmaster fired, and a school in a conundrum. With all these storylines bound with each other, we can only wonder what the third season of “Sex Education” will bring us.
Release Date: Sex Education Season 3
The official announcement of the renewal of the show for the third season came in February 2020. The COVID pandemic halted productions, but the cast shared a video and confirmed they were back on set in September of the last year. The exact date of release is not yet available to us, but it will not be too ambitious to expect the third season of “Sex Education” to grace our Netflix sometime in the first half of 2021.
The previous two seasons were released in January of 2019 and 2020 respectively, but as we have already ventured into February, let’s patiently wait for the third season announcement.
Sex Education Season 3: Cast
The cast of “Sex Education” is what makes it absolutely delightful. We know that the core cast is definitely all set to come back. Asa Butterfield and Gillian Anderson will be back as the mother-son duo, Otis and Jean. With pregnancy in the way, we can only speculate what changes will come in this relationship. Emma Mackey will be reprising her role as Maeve, and the amazing cast of Ncuti Gatwa, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Aimee Lou Wood, and Alistair Petrie, to name a very few, will be back to reprise their roles on the show.
The exciting part, however, is the addition of the new cast members. First and foremost, Jemima Kirke as new Headmistress Hope will be heading Moordale after Headmaster Groff was sent on administrative leave. The said ex Headmaster will be seen dwelling with his elder, more successful brother Peter Groff, played by none other than Jason Isaacs. Dua Saleh will be an addition to this madness of a school, portraying a non-binary student and they are soon due to clash with the dear Headmistress Hope.
